It raises serious questions as to the primary beneficiary of US policy, and its destructive results for the United States. The extraordinary extent of US political, economic, military and diplomatic support for the state of Israel is explored, along with the means whereby such support is generated and consolidated. Contending that Zionist power in America ensured unconditional US backing for Israeli colonization of Palestine and its massive uprooting of Palestinians, it views the interests of Israel rather than those of Big Oil as the primary cause of the disastrous US wars against Iraq and threats of war against Iran and Syria. It demonstrates and condemns US imitation of Israeli practice as it relates to conduct of the war on terrorism and torture. It sheds light on the AIPAC spying scandal and other Israeli espionage against America; the fraudulent and complicit role of America's academic "terrorist experts" in furthering criminal government policies, and the orchestration of the Danish cartoons to foment antipathy between Muslims and the West. It questions the inability in America to sustain or even formulate a discourse related to the subject of Israeli influence on the United States.

The Power of Israel in the United States Reviews
This is an awesome book. A lot of truths in one book.I would recommend this book to anyone looking for proof about the influence of the Jewish Lobbies upon the world.
I don't really have much of an opinion on this book. Mainly because Petras comes off as a terrible writer. Yes, the Israel lobby is one of the most powerful lobbies in the country, but this book leaves you feeling that the Israel Lobby is the ONLY lobby that shapes American foreign policy and any such view should be held with great suspicion. However, I do agree with Petras that Chomsky tends to dismiss the Lobby's significance. The problem with this book is that it is written with too much passion. Petras leaves himself very vulnerable to attacks of anti-semitism (even if this is not the case). The facts should have been presented in a much more toned down and academic manner. Also, from an aesthetic standpoint, the layout sucks. It is written like a newspaper article with bold excerpts of the text set apart from the main body every few pages.
Not sure when I will get to this, but hopefully someday . . .
He didn't say anything new about the actions going around, but the mechanisms is very shocking, very interesting book.
I just found this book through a friend. I have the translated edition. I hope it presents something new. I do not like the translation. Thanx God I found the original book.
